Connacht Golf Conference - Cancelled
Sadly, this Sunday's Golf Conference has been cancelled... due to a lack of interest from the 41 affiliated golf clubs in the Connacht region. Unfortunately, only 20 delegates from eight clubs had committed to attend.
Frankly I'm surprised.
Given the situation we're in, you'd think people would be willing to explore every new avenue available to them... not only willing, but eager. The annual subscriptions might be the key revenue that clubs use to maintain operations, but the societies and green fee golfers are a vital revenue stream too. Paul O'Neill was attempting to bring golf clubs together to explore the options and the possibilities - and there are definitely a few out there. Doesn't it seem daft to ignore a call to arms that could bring a wealth of business and revenue to the Connacht region?
